ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research on the motherhood of Australian women. According to the author, there are three discourses of the experiences of motherhood between Australian women, which are the Good Mother, the Superwoman, and the Yummy Mummy. The relationships between these discourses are seen as complex and failure to perform them adequately can result in women being labelled bad mothers, either by themselves or others.
